Mortgage giant Fannie Mae and its little brother Freddie Mac took heat—and $187 billion in government bailout money—for their role in the 2008 subprime mortgage meltdown, but that hasn’t stopped the two from making a major comeback. With last year’s rebounding housing market, plans to rein in their power have largely gone unrealized. Now that the two have paid back more than they were lent—pumping money straight into the Treasury—what comes next is anyone’s guess. Fannie raked in $14 billion in profits last year—a 83% decrease from the year before—and its share price still founders in the gutter.
